Army veteran and current Auburn intern Josh Wetzel had both of his legs amputated after he was injured in a roadside bomb explosion while serving in Afghanistan in 2012. During his recovery, Wetzel became a hero to his local Alabama community.
With the help of the video board in Jordan-Hare Stadium, which has become a useful tool for special celebrations, Wetzel’s wife, Paige, recently gave him two big birthday surprises.
